his is a Thank You card I made for a blog hop. It is made with the Gilded Autumn Suite from Stampin' Up! (product # 155123). It has become one of my favorite suites.
I hope that you like this card. If you do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I hope you will consider me. You can order these products as a Suite or individually through my website https://brendaliesse.stampinup.net
Special thanks to to Karen Kinkle (karenscardkorner.blogspot.com) who I cased the card base from. I have had so much fun with this card base.
Using a paper trimmer cut a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base out of Very Vanilla. Score at 4 1/4" and fold in half.
For the inside of your card you will need to cut a 8" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla card stock and score at 2", 4" and 6".
Cut a Early Espresso card mat measuring 5 1/4" x 4". Glue the mat to the front of your card base. Only glue the outside edges of the mat to your card base.
Cut a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP (I used the striped paper). Glue the stripped DSP paper to the Early Espresso mat. Only glue the outside edges.
Cut a 5" x 2" pieces of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP ( I used the pumpkin paper). Adhere this piece to the stripped paper using glue. Make sure to glue only the outside edges.
Using the largest layering circle die cut out a scalloped circle from your card base (1/2" from the top and 1/2" from the left side of your card (I measured from the Early Espresso mat towards the middle of the card). You will need to run it through the Stampin' Cut & Embossing Machine about three times to go through all the layers. Save your extra pieces, we will use some of them later.
Using the Stamparatus, stamp the sentiment My heart is grateful for you on to the left hand side of your 8" x 5 " piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Fold your score lines started on the left hand side. The first fold will be a mountain fold (the peak of the fold will be towards you), the second will be a mountain fold and the third will be a valley fold ( the peak of the fold will be away from you).
Glue on the outside edges of the left handed 2" piece (you do not want glue where the hole is on your card base). Adhere this to the inside of your card base. I lined up the glued edge with the score line of the card base. Now fold the card and add glue to the right hand panel. Close the card and it will adhere to the card base.
Using the Beautiful Autumn stamps (these are 2 step stamps, meaning there is an outline stamp and then a stamp that colors the inside of the image) stamp the outline of the maple leaves in Merry Merlot Ink (your will need 6). Now using second generation stamping (ink up the stamp that shades the inside of the image with Merry Merlot and stamp once on a scrap piece of paper and then stamp the inside of your image. It lightens up the color so you can see the detail of your maple leaf).
Now stamp 6 oak leaf using the outline stamp and Mint Macaron ink. Now stamp the inside of the leaves using second generation stamping.
Using Early Espresso Ink stamp the outline for 6 acorns. Stamp the inside of the acorn with crumb cake using second generation stamping. Now use Soft suede ink and stamp the top of your acorns (I did not do second generation stamping on the tops. I wanted the tops to be dark).
Now punch out your Maple leaves, Oak leaves and acorns (if you do not have the punches you can cut them out by hand).
Die cut out (8) Mossy Meadow leaves using the Forever Flourishing dies.
Die cut out one of the Gold arched leaves from the same die set.
Stamp Thank You using Early Espresso Ink onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Fussy cut out the sentiment (hand cut around the sentiment).
Decorate the inside of your card with two of the Mossy Meadow leaves, one maple, one oak leaf as well as one acorn. I cut off the stems of the leaves and added a little glue to the bottom leaves and adhered the leaves below the sentiment. Glue down the maple leaf, oak leaf and acorn.
Using the largest plain circle die and the leftover Very Vanilla scalloped circle you are going to die cut the scalloped edges off the circle.
Take the leftover Early Espresso scalloped circle and the second largest scalloped circle die and cut out a smaller Early Espresso scalloped circle. Glue the Early Espresso circle to the Very Vanilla circle.
You are going to close your card (front side up), add glue to the right hand side of your circle (do not glue the left hand side of the circle) then lay this piece down in the hole. When you open your card the left hand side of the circle will pop out of the hole.
Decorate the Early Espresso circle, starting with the Mossy Meadow leaves. I cut of the stems, and glued the bottom leaves on to the circle.
Using glue dots I adhered the gold leaves to the top of the circle.
Adhere the maple leaves, oak leaves and acorns to the circle as shown on the card photo using glue dots.
Tie a bow in the Pool Party Shear ribbon and adhere to the top of the gold leaves. I used mini glue dots.
Use mini dimensionals and adhere Thank You to the bottom front of your card. Now decorate with one maple leaf and oak leaf, I used glue to adhere the pieces. I used a mini dimensional to adhere the acorn .
Your card is now finished. I know this is a long project but well worth the effort.
I hope you had a great time making this card.
Thank You for stopping by my blog.
